TOBY TOBIAS – JOURNEY FROM JOHANNESBURG
ORIGINAL SONGS IN A MUSICAL/THEATRICAL PRODUCTION
 
TOBY TOBIAS, SOUTH AFRICAN-BORN, LONG ISLAND BASED SINGER/SONGWRITER, PERFORMS HIS SHOW ‘JOURNEY FROM JOHANNESBURG’ AT METROPOLITAN ROOM JANUARY 24, 2016
 
Toby is excited to bring to The Metropoliatan Room in Manhattan a show of his original songs in a musical/theatrical presentation. This show's message is one of racial equality, understanding of each other’s cultures and a strong hope of togetherness in a world which seeks to divide rather than bring together. The performance tells the story of Toby’s journey through 3 continents and three countries and takes the form of his original songs being interspersed with small vignettes about his life growing up in Johannesburg, South Africa and his time living in Jerusalem, Israel.
Toby will be playing acoustic guitar and vocals. Joining him will be: Ken Talve on electric guitar; Joe Pess on
drums and percussion; Thomas Velsor on bass.

Born and raised in Johannesburg, South Africa, Toby has immersed himself in all genres of American Music of the last 50 years. His interest in African Rhythms & World Music, coupled with his keen ear for highly intuitive arrangements, has been the hallmark of his writing and performance styles, and he has garnered a strong following of listeners on Long Island and beyond. A graduate of the prestigious Rubin Academy of Music in Jerusalem Israel, he continues to search for material that stays as close to his musical roots as possible while at the same time reaching for new and exciting musical universes.
